"Sound Scout" by San Antonio artist Justin Boyd is a rotating series of sound installations at Hemisfair Park.The artist recorded ambient sounds such as children's laughter, birds, cars, and other noise found around Hemisfair and manipulated them to create new abstracted sounds. The sounds come from mounted speakers along the park's historic acequia. The artwork is a contemplative 'sound trail" that allows for the progression of discovery through the act of listening. "Sound Scout"  is part of the series "Play" located in Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair Park. To discover more information about "Play" please visit here.
